Additional Information

Exclusive | Enjoy Ultra-Easy Watering with Featherweight Slim Hoses — Lightweight, Durable and Toxin-Free!

  • Easy-to-use, heavy-duty hose is amazingly lightweight and flexible
  • Toxin-free — no lead, BPA or phthalates
  • 45% lighter than traditional garden hoses!

Tired of dragging heavy hoses? Lighten up your watering routine with our ultra-lightweight hoses — the 25' hose weighs just 2.6 lbs! The hoses remain flexible, easy to maneuver, and kink-free, even in chilly weather. And they're free from the toxins found in many hoses, so they're safe for people and pets. Nylon hose guards prevent kinking at ends and the chrome-plated zinc fittings are leakproof. The textured surface offers a sure grip.

Hose Care Tips

To help prevent kinking and prolong the life of your hose:

  • Before using a new hose, straighten it and untwist the coils until the hose lays flat.
  • After each use, straighten and untwist the hose before coiling it. Do not store the hose with kinks in it.
  • Always coil your hose in the same direction — either clockwise or counterclockwise.
  • Store the hose on a hose reel for easier coiling.
  • Drain the hose as you coil it.
  • Drain the hose prior to freezing temperatures and store under cover.

Note: To attach a nozzle or other watering accessory to your Featherweight Hose, grip the hose with one hand just below the hose guard and turn the fitting on the accessory with your other hand until it’s tight.

Lightweight hose, Da Bomb!

By Deb

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

This hose is so light, I don't have to drag & pull it around. It is effortless to move to where I need it in an instant! No more "wrestling", fighting, or cursing! Love this hose almost as much as I love mysprayer!

No more squashed plants!

By Rock Gardener

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I actually bought both the 25 foot and the 50 foot hoses for our small yards - and love them! They are lightweight, so I don't have to worry about squashing plants as I pull or flip the hose around, I'm not throwing my back or shoulder out as I'm dragging them back and forth, and, even better, they have as much or more pressure as my old, clunky, heavy hoses had. It's so nice to give a gentle tug and have the hose where you want it, instead of spending time fighting and untangling a heavy mess. My plants now look forward to watering day - as do I!

Very light, but...

By Andrea

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I really dislike hoses! They kink, twist in the opposite directions and are heavy. I have a huge container garden that I water by hand daily, so I have various hoses set up in different areas. This hose is very light and does not kink, BUT they still twist in opposite directions when I try to gather it up neatly to store. I know it's a bit picky, but when it's 90 out, you want to get the job done!

just as described

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I bought two of these to water upper decks. I chose the moss color to blend in with the building so I can let them hang from the deck for easy hookup. The connectors are well made with coils that support the ends of the hose..

Have already bought another one

By Jill

from SF Bay Area

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

These hoses are the bomb! Admittedly, I should have bought the longest one first. I bought this 25' one first, then added a longer one. I can go most of the way around the garden without wearing myself out pulling on hoses. I will definitely get one more of these when my oldest hose wears out. Love them.

Featherweight Slim Hose

By Tomato Man

from Portland, OR

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I really like the hose because it is so light. My only complaints are that the hose kinks (which drives me crazy) and the washer that comes on the female connector is no good. I had to replace it with a decent washer.

The 25' weighs NOTHING

      Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

      I've bought this hose in a couple lengths, this latest at 25' literally feels weightless without the water inside. New darker green color looks nice and formal, but the water will heat up quite a bit in the sun. Don't burn your flowers! The fittings are topnotch and I expect the hoses to last quite awhile despite the ultralight construction. At least if I don't mow over them.

      very lighweight

      By Cindy

      from Kentucky

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

      This hose works well in areas that are tight to work in. Moving the hose around in tight quarters ia difficult if it is stiff, heavy and constantly twisted. This product solved that issue. The color blends in nicely with plants so I can keep it out and not distract from garden.

      I have bought two of these and love them!

      Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

      I absolutely love this product. It is so much easier than dragging heavy hoses around the yard to water my plants. I was concerned there might not be enough volume/pressure to power my sprinkler but it works great! I would definitely buy again.
